Christmas Carol Poem

Christmas Carol 

Author: G.K. Chesterton

The Christ-child lay on Mary’s lap, 
His hair was like a light. 
(O weary, weary were the world, 
But here is all aright.)

The Christ-child lay on Mary’s breast 
His hair was like a star. 
(O stern and cunning are the kings, 
But here the true hearts are.)

The Christ-child lay on Mary’s heart, 
His hair was like a fire. 
(O weary, weary is the world, 
But here the world’s desire.)

The Christ-child stood on Mary’s knee, 
His hair was like a crown, 
And all the flowers looked up at Him, 
And all the stars looked down.
